I've long been a fan of convincing my friends to do stupid things with me. Whether it's breaking into a scholarship hall in college to steal a bunch of nacho cheese or getting a bunch of people to get drunk and see Jack & Jill with me (to make fun of it, I assure you), no pursuit is too stupid or potentially ill-fated. I went solo skydiving several times in the early 2000s, and I decided recently that it was time for my first high-altitude tandem jump. Expecting to recruit maybe five or six adventurous friends, I was surprised to assemble a group of 17 terrified buddies to join me in my trip to Westside Skydivers in Winsted, Minnesota. Among the group were four Game Informer editors: Tim Turi, Ben Reeves, Ben Hanson, and myself. We grabbed footage of the entire ordeal, and you can watch it here.
Click below to see me scared out of my mind, Tim be angry at the sky, Hanson look like he's either about to cry or crap his pants, and Ben Reeves making the absolute dumbest faces I've ever seen on a human being.
Thanks to our video producer Ben Hanson for his work editing Westside's footage!

Man, I think I want to go skydiving now. That looks like a ton of fun.
Good choice of music, Star Fox and Super Mario. And how could Dan possibly skydive without his America Pants on?
That was awesome.
Yea, I completely lost it at Ben Reeves' face. Laughed hysterically.
Dan you post th most hilarious and pointless videos.
Good lord, this is the best thing I've seen all day.
Nice job Dan, next time convince them to do something even cooler. Try robbing a bank next time or playing real life GTA.
You guys have the best job EVER!!!
You guys just proved you have the best job in the world!
So much nostril flare....
just like pilot wings, where was the bulls eye target at the end?
GI Editors are best editors. Why? I get to see them jump out of planes, sit on whoopee cushions, play games with their hilarious commentaries, invade Gamestop launch parties, and more.
Star Fox theme, nice choice
reeves has such a floppy face, You should try to find a way into one of those centrifuge things that spin real fast, that would make for some funny Ben Facese
Hanson with the Zelda Super Replay Shirt!
Definitely want to do this and sometime soon. Always wanted to skydive and I'll use this as inspiration.
loved Ben Reeves at the end "My Favorite ride on the citadel"
